I misread the sub's name as "Hammurabi" and I was so confused.

As mentioned earlier, "Hammerhai" is the German term for "hammerhead shark".

Naming something after Hammurabi would certainly be an interesting choice too - just not that fitting for an u-boat from Nazi Germany... :-D

Wasn't that the name of the hovercraft out of The Matrix?

--pause for Google--

Nope. Nope it was not.

In rather morbid way, "Nebuchadnezzar" would indeed be a more fitting name for some Nazi vehicle, considering his role in the Bible... (Conquered the Jews, destroyed their temple in Jerusalem, initiated the Babylonian captivity...)

Yes indeed, except that Nebuchadnezzar was Semitic too. (I'm trying to think if that would be funny on some level, but... no?)

Regarding Nazis and names of Semitic origin: The first name of Goebbels was Joseph...
Sure, it's a highly popular biblical name that his parents picked for him way before Nazism was even a thing, but still, that's quite some (very) dark irony...

My original idea was obviously to give the u-boat the "Number of the Beast".
But there was actually a real u-boat with that registry.
So I tacked on an additional 6, thus giving the u-boat a higher number than any real one had.
